Only Strong & Secure Passwords should be Authorized at Sign-Up
Cybercrime is becoming increasingly more commonplace, and the cause is in the majority of cases that compromised passwords are stolen. There are many methods by which hackers can obtain personal passwords to your online accounts. To give you some idea, these may include:
- Brute force attacks,
- Reused passwords,
- Common and too simple passwords,
- Hacked credentials,
- Credentials obtained through Phishing
Hackers may use the stolen information to start disinformation campaigns against your company, to delete important Intellectual Property from your servers, to try to blackmail your company by threatening to publish vulnerable internal information or to use payment information for own online ambitions.
To reduce the risk of being compromised to a minimum, security experts highly recommend, among other things, using only strong passwords which were not compromised (or hacked) before and following certain security characteristics (see below).
At Engity, we know that it is difficult for users to set a secure and strong password. We therefore established our Easy-Ensure Password Check as a default within our registration process helping you easily setting up a secure and strong password. In combination with our Breached Password Detection Check, we support your IT department, providing a secure IT platform.
